$19.6 bil­lion  Self-made Score: * Source: tesla, rock­ets age: 47 reS­i­dence: los an­ge­les Phi­lan­throPy score: It’s been a year of bad head­lines for Musk, many of them self-in­duced. This sum­mer alone, he sent a cryp­tic tweet that he might take pri­vate his elec­tric car­maker Tesla, which re­port­edly trig­gered an SEC in­ves­ti­ga­tion; ap­peared to smoke mar­i­juana (now le­gal in Cal­i­for­nia) on a pod­cast; and called a Bri­tish cave ex­plorer help­ing res­cue Thai chil­dren a “child rapist.” The res­cuer de­nied the al­le­ga­tions and sued Musk for defama­tion. The year started on much firmer ground. In March, Tesla an­nounced a 10-year com­pen­sa­tion agree­ment for Musk tied to per­for­mance that could yield him more than $50 bil­lion.
